The Benefits of Being a MTA Queensland Member

The Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTA Queensland) has been in operation since 1929. Over our 88 years, MTA Queensland has built a solid foundation of professionalism, trust, honesty and reliability with our members.

With over 13,000 businesses and 90,000 people working in the motor trades, MTA Queensland compromises 11 automotive divisions that represent members within specific industry sectors. Along with the comfort of being represented by the peak automotive industry body, MTA Queensland members that display the Professional Circle; a symbol symbolising ‘proof of professionalism,’ are assured of their status as a business that maintains the highest of standards.

MTA Queensland Group CEO, Dr Brett Dale said, “The public recognises businesses that display the MTA Queensland Professional Circle, as a business that has passed a stringent approval process by their respective divisional committee before becoming an approved MTA Queensland member.

“This means that Queenslanders can be assured that automotive businesses displaying the Professional Circle are meeting the 10 commitments which include honesty, professionalism, transparency, courtesy, integrity, care, clarity, proactivity, accountability and compliance.“

It can be difficult for the public to know whether an automotive business is trustworthy, reliable and honest. AMTA Queensland member displaying the Professional Circle can give that re-assurance.”
